My card today is a bit of a departure from the "norm" for me. You know....I love lots of designer paper and lots of bright colors.
This card certainly has some pops of color, but there is nary a piece of designer paper in sight, {{{sigh}}}.

Even though I didn't use any designer paper, I do love how it turned out...the simplicity of it, and the message. Smile, Giggle, Laugh, Love. To laugh and to love are the two of the greatest blessings ever. Don't you feel great after a gut busting laugh? I sure do. My youngest son had the best belly laugh ever when he was a baby. In hindsight, I wish I would have made a vocal recording of it so I would have had it forever. He still has a wonderful laugh, but never, in all my life, have I ever run across another baby that had a bigger, better belly laugh than my little guy.....

Well, as far as the card goes, I don't think you need the play by play on it. I think it's pretty self explanatory. The first three words, "smile-giggle-laugh", are actually from one stamp (Hero Arts) that I cut up individually and placed on each picture. The word "love" is from JustRite (their small word sets). The laughing girl image is from a stamp I've had for such a long time and never use. I think it's from Paperbag Studios. Don't you think it looks just like you did when you were a little girl? It could be me, I swear! Anyways, I just stamped her four times in different colors and matted all four images on a piece of black cardstock. Soooo simple.....

Remember to Smile, Giggle, and Laugh today!
